Is it always an arms race, or is there a lock I can buy that I can trust for 15 years?
This is the lock I use on my bike!
My heart sank when I saw this in my feed. I've had one of these for nearly 10 years. It's not my only form of security but I use it on the rear in conjunction with a second, more basic disc lock on the front of my motorbike, when stopping at supermarkets for example. I don't know if it has as many pins (being an old lock) but it has the same crescent shaped key. This video makes me happy.
I just bought this for my motorbike a month ago. Its a couple of attacks on the shackle which were unsuccessful. And since LPL needed a CUSTOM pick, I'm fairly sure I haven't bought a lemon ;)
I have this lock and have tried creating a tool to pick it (unsuccessfully). I'm a noob by the way, but could someone kindly explain how/where the tension is applied? I have a tool-end broadly similar to what's on screen but am struggling to see what's being tensioned? The first disc?
Watching these is like watching Bob Ross :) so calm and informative
hi can i order the pick you use?
I am just going to be one of those guys that puts so many locks on my cheap motor scooter that there will always be someone laughing at it making theft impossible.
How to create a lock that won't get stolen? Fancy locks, nah just weird key ways.
Only thing i need to do is raptor coating the lock
So we've seen our lawyer pick and break into almost every lock under the sun but can you provide us with a list of locks that are some of your roughest challenges and durable for standard use thank you. this would be greatly appreciated ~ voiceof thepeople
I have this lock and this video makes me happy
I bought a pretty strong chain for my bike, now I need a good lock to put on it, the problem is my budget is only 20-25$ what would be the safest choice you think in that price range?
Is it shim-able?
I use 2 of these, one on rear sprocket happy with them
LPL has such a tranquil voice-I can fall asleep to it. Don’t even care what the videos are about half the time. Probably couldn’t pick a lock to save my life. 😀
Imagine if _all_ locks are like the mgnetic one that BosnialBill took apart. If the key could be inert and the lock wolly magnetic, it would be a _big_ win. Make it fail-safe with no means to unlock without breaking out grinding tools and there's a sure winner to deter bike theft because SPP would be _extinct._
Can it be shimmed ?
I saw a super quick edit in the video. Ya had to be quick to catch it! How long did it really take to pick?
@lockpickinglawyer can you please do a video on your top motorcycle locks that you recommend?
I can only imagine that if you ever started a rock band, it would be named TOK tension and the Little Clicks. Number one hit song: counter rotation 😄
It's not a lock picking if you use a grinder, someone might say :)
Oxford Boss can get this *W*
Lift wheel onto skate board and load into van and bye bye bike
I'd like to see someone try to pick the alarmed version of this that I use without setting off the alarm
@AMK if it's motion/jolt sensitive, the alarmed locks don't fare well against someone with steady hands. I'd like to see a disc detainer model with a pressure alarm in the torque disc that sounds if pressure is applied to it without turning some or all of the set discs correctly at the same time. Or a cheaper implementation might be to have a random disc with a zero turn cut, so if they try to pick that one, it triggers an alarm. Keep the motion alarm for low skill attacks, and the disc trigger for high skill attacks.
@LockPickingLawyer sounds good! I look forward to the attempt
Challenge accepted. Gimme a couple weeks to get one.
The LockPickingLawyer real name is Keanu Reeves. Look it up to see is face.
LPL: "Let's see if we can get into this lock." < Throws the lock into the fires of Mount Doom, melting the lock completely> LPL: "So, as you can see, this lock was not very challenging."
Well it is colorful.
Just what I'd have expected from a man with the same code name as the boss.
The ones wanting to pick this listened carefully, you said it, measure the amount of reduction of the keyway, transfer reduction to the pick, done. A job for less than 10 minutes, if I know what i'm doing and have my workplace for such jobs ready.
This counts as an endorsement of sorts. Now if I only had a motorcycle.
Laita tykkäys jos oot suomalainen🎅🎅🎅
When LPL has to customize a custom tool to pick a lock, it's good enough!
What don't you make your own lock? You'd know how to and what can make it the hardest to pick...
I wonder how many criminals you are teaching your legendary lock picking skills but no clap I love your channel 😘
Not a lock expert by any stretch, so when I feel like I see any obvious way to make them all a lot better, I have to assume I am wrong. Hopefully someone can tell me why. Seems like the process involves pushing a series of pins, one after the other. Wouldn't a small spring behind each of the pins require then all to turn at the same time? If you picked pin one, and moved on to two, one would reset, undoing your pick. Clearly it wouldn't be that easy, but what am I missing?
Soo, how many tools do you want? :D
Lock picking lawyer please respond fast so I was practicing lock picking with paper clips and the paper clip broke in side pretty deep I dont know how to get it out
You need to pick this lock, everyone is itching to see it: uzload.info/fun/naKsn2mT23qAu3k/video
So they're primarily relying on potential thieves just not having a pick the right size?
Does anyone know a good lockpicking set to buy? I live in the uk....
Woohoo, my bike lock's LPL video is more than a minute long! That's something to tell my insurance company 😂
Lock maker designs locks, pickers design picks smh Such irony.
Didn't even fucking touch it for the pick
Noticed the hands are getting fat recently. Been doing a lot of sitting during the quarantine? 😂
what is a good padlock? I know what not to buy from watching your videos problem is every time I get a new lock you make a video of it being picked open in about 5 seconds
hey, are there *any* locks u'd recommend ?
I've been using this for my motorcycle for five years and it hasn't been touched. It would be too hard to cut and my bike being less sought after allows the lock to do it's job well: deter the thief so that they move on to something else.
what do u think about the new material proteus being discovered that is super resistant to cutting? newatlas.com/materials/proteus-non-cuttable-bike-lock-armor/
So he had to modify his custom tool to even begin to pick this. Yeah I think maybe the standards need to be adjusted here.
Bollox mate. Total respect for what you do , but who on this planet has your shit??!! No one
Is there any lock which you can't pick.
Nice to know it’s tough, I have the alarmed version of this lock
And tell me how he's lawyer
Welp Good to know it’s difficult for the typical chav with a pick set
LPL : talks about the unique lock design. LPL : pulls out a special pick. Everyone : I'll take your entire stock!
Sooo, until LPL and Bosnian Bill meat up to patent a new pick variation, it should be safe for a while :-).
Next video. “Version 2 of the pick that Bosnian Bill and I made”. I’d call a lock that requires a dremeled specialty pick “good enough”
When he has to Dremel a tool to fit you're probably safe
I had oxford screamer lock for disc break and case broke off. If someone would want to pick my bike and throw it into a bus he would have huge rate of success just by cutting plastic casing and destroying electric part of lock. If he could do it under 10 seconds (which is possible).
Yeah I tried this but my neighbor saw me struggling and felt bad so he just threw me the keys
I challenge you to try picking the Stealth Padlock by Urban Alps
1:42 montage cut
The Oxford boss has been that design for well over 10 years. Think the one I have is from 2004. If they havnt made a pick for it by now are they ever likely to?
Does he has a video were he explains how this kinda lock works?
Did you already heard of this / tried to break it? newatlas.com/materials/proteus-non-cuttable-bike-lock-armor/?fbclid=IwAR1tyQA4yc11_A_VFp1u8nRsp1OEYhCdGX9sPDeUGaqR8v-bODrwvyPkuFo
If it doesn't have something you can buy online to pick it or you have to make something yourself it's good enough
Someone should make a lock that automatically opens when he says 'this is the LockpicingLawyer'
So what lock do you recommend that is hard to pick and hard to destroy that will keep my stuff safe? Most thieves in my area aren't going to pick, but try to cut locks. However I'd rather kill two birds with one stone.
Every time I ask sparrows when the new disc detainer pick will be available they say two weeks That was six weeks ago
Would like to see this vs a Ramset gun, if you have a spare brake rotor around that would be a cool test to see what would brake first.
It's all fun and games until the lock you bought shows up on an lpl video titled "lock defeated with paper airplane"
Could you design an unpickable lock?
I had this lock with the covered chain for my motorcycle about 10 years ago and I liked it a lot. The plastic body is very thick and rounded making it hard for any kind bolt-cutter/chisel/hammering action to bite into. If you wrapped enough links in the shackle and locked it in a tight to-get-to spot, it made it hard to cut. The only thing left is to heft a 500+ lbs bike into your stolen truck, lol. If I recall, the chain was a grade 120; don't remember the link size but it was thick.
Can you do a review on the kdo lockpicking set please really thinking about getting it but i want to see a professional choose first www.amazon.com/dp/B08C5454CF/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_HXMfFb2CTR992
Fort Knox: We are the most secure place in the world! No one can get in here. LockPickingLawyer: This is the LockPickingLawyer and what I have for you today is Fort Knox. As you can see they have pretty high security but I should be able to get in with this magnet, a twig, and this pick that BosnianBill and I made.
10 seconds later. And we are in. There are serious design flaws in their security system.
I have been watching your videos for months and not once did I notice I had never actually subscribed, now I will
"Unlikely to be picked on the street" - 5 starts
Where can I buy this lock???
Hey, did you see the news story today about this new un-cuttable metal they are calling Proteus, made from a mixture of foam aluminum and ceramic? Here's a demo of it being attacked with an angle grinder: uzload.info/fun/iGukol6a3HKcx30/video
Seems like a good lock. I wish we could have had a better look at the keyway.
Always gets a smile when “#2 is binding....”
I'm wondering just how common expert lock pickers are out there. I would think that most locks are opened with brute force. I just don't see a guy with the skills of Al Mundy (or LPL) hunkering down with his pick set and stealing somebody's Specialized road bike. Maybe better to know a lock's resistance to chemical or mechanical assault.
New Proteus lock coming. Unbreakable. Uncuttable. Undestroyable. Can LPL do it? Can he???
How about a lock that you would actually recommend?
Anyone else look at the time of the videos before clicking to see if it might actually be a challenge for the LPL?
Oxford do make a another lock like this one called the "Oxford Boss Alarm Disk Lock". Anyone looking for extra security should go with that one because as soon as the lock is moved any would be thief will get a 120db fuck off for 10 secs. Lovely stuff.
Please open the locks with the key before you pick them🙏
if we overlook the fact that a master can overcome any hurdle, this is a pretty good lock for a few weeks.
How common are picking attacks in public places? I have a suspicion that even locks that can be picked with a "plastic fork form the food stand across the street" will be subjected to physical attacks as "beating on things with a heavy object" is a lot more common skill set.
1:45 jumpcut.. Lock picking lawyer what magic are you hiding
Was it a jump cut or was it just a rendering artifact? If it was a jump cut it was a damn good one because watching his hands I see no difference. Even at 1/4 speed I see nothing to indicate a cut. Only some artifacting
If this lock was on the motorcycle in the outside where it's loud and not sitting on a table, does that affect picking?
LPL: To sum up, this lake is safe. *sighs of relief from Oxford* LPL: "...for now." *nervous sweating from Oxford*
Good to see some locks that are approved
I think motorcycle locks should be attacked by brute force. Most thief's would use a grinder etc etc.
New “uncuttable” material. newatlas.com/materials/proteus-non-cuttable-bike-lock-armor/
I guess that’s a pass for oxford I think
I have two ABUS DETECTO 8077. Are they good?
